{DIY} Magnets

Operation Nesting is in full swing.
I am getting our house slowly organized and ready for the baby coming. Little projects here and there are the easiest for me to tackle with Gavin running around wanting to play hockey at every single moment of the day.

One project that I have had my eye on for a while is this disaster area (because the baby is going to really care if the front of the fridge is organized, right?):
Gavin loves to see his friend's faces on the fridge. I love the pictures too, but it was getting to be a mess, with pictures falling almost every time we opened the freezer door or breathed on the front of the fridge. (A little exaggeration). 

I decided to take the uglier magnets that we have received for free and some clothespins and whip up some nicer looking magnets that would keep those pictures of friends up on the fridge where they belong. 
I cleaned off the clothespins and picked pretty scrapbooking paper for the fronts of the magnets. 
I used Mod Podge to glue the paper to the front of the clothespins and advertisement magnets. I used a roll of craft magnets to attach to the back of the clothespins. 
Then it was up on the fridge they go! 
Things like bag tags and coupons went on the other side of the fridge so they are still accessible, but not in full view. Much better from the cluttered mess that was going on before!

If you haven't already 'liked' us on Facebook, take a few seconds and swing by! 


  1. such a cute idea, Heidi!!! I'll have to give that a try. Where do you buy the magnet rolls?

    1. I got them at the dollar store! They have an adhesive backing so they just stick on to the backs of the clothespins. Good luck!
